Hey y’all, I’m new to the forum.
I’m about to start my jet boat build. I’m kind of confused on what block I need to buy. From what I’ve gathered so far, the 68-70’s are the best blocks. And it needs to be a 4 bolt main

But does that mean all the other 460 blocks are junk?? And they can’t be set up for a 4 bolt main?

I plan on building a 532ci that will have a blower on her. Looking to push around 800hp

I’m basically following this build.

I would just get a Ford racing 460 block...comes with 4 bolt mains and other mods, much better than an old used block for this type of build. Factory 4 bolt main blocks only came in early CJ and all SCJ engines, plus some police engines. They are hard to come by and pricy.
